Calderdale chef Chris Blackburn is the reigning World Yorkshire Pudding champion — here's his recipe:


  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper


  • Sift flour, pepper and salt in to a large bowl and add the beaten eggs and half the milk.
  • Whisk until it resembles wallpaper paste (needs to be very smooth), then add the rest of the milk and again whisk till smooth
  • Let it rest for 30 minutes, this can be speeded up by placing it in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • Put a muffin tray with 1/2 teaspoon of beef dripping in each hole in the oven at the highest possible temperature (normally 270 C) until you hear the oven click and reach temperature.
  • Remove the muffin tray and pour in your batter (about 1/2 to 3/4 way up each hole), then place back in oven and reduce temperature immediately to 230 C / Gas 7.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
